Over the next week and a bit we will be seeing some dramatic events surely. At this stage last season Man U were lucky to escape from Rome with an away goal, but a week later totally ripped a new hole into AS bit of Roma. Milan were also knocking out Bayern Munich. Can it be a coincedence that Barcelona play a German team? and could have 3 English teams in the SF, similar to Milan... maybe so, maybe not... on barca's form, they must watch out for Schalke though, not as easy as they may expect.

In any case this years QFs should be a good watch. Probably most intriguing is Roma - Man Utd... but certainly the All english clash is being hyped up, particularly on these shores.

I am betting on 4 draws for the first games. lets see.

Liverpool don´t know to defend corner kicks. They look like Barça.
thats because we play zonal marking
UEFA should just ban Liverpool from European competitions until they appoint a coach who doesn't play 9 men behind the ball in most games and would let them play some attacking football. First Houller then Benitez, enough already.
should ban Roma for being so sh*t
Do 95% of the people on this board think Fener are gonna lose again?

Chelsea 0-2 Fenerbahçe
Liverpool 1-1 Arsenal (Arsenal go through on pens)

Manchester 3-1 Roma
Barcelona 0-0 Schalke
Cant see Fener winning in a million years.

Arsenal will never beat Liverpool on Penalties.
Let's not forget the joke decisions that conditioned BOTH Inter games in the last round. It was 0-0 on both occasions when the red cards happened so Liverpool didn't score against a full team.

And it's getting even more blatant in this round with the penalty calls going in their favour. It's making a mockery of the Competition.

I wonder what's gonna happen in the Semis, Chelsea have the 2nd leg at Stamford Bridge....are Liverpool gonna demand to have that changed?

****ing cheating vermin.
use have won 2 league titles cheating:thmbup:
i'm not just saying this because I'm a Liverpool fan but IMO that was a penalty, soft penalty but still a penalty, Babel gets pulled out side the box but carries on and Toure leans/pulls on Bables back while running across him making Babel loose his balance. In the eyes of the law thats a penalty.

You get decision, after decision - domestically and in Europe. On the rare ocassion that you don't, the referee apologises to you and a minutes silence is held in the city centre.
who was talking about this season? no wonder he apologized did you the his decision?

We've won league titles playing great football and maintaining a consistent level through a 9 month period.

You should try it once, and not just be a pathetic little cup team.

NB. I'm still expecting to read on uefa.com any minute now that Liverpool's wish of getting the 2nd leg semi against Chelsea moved around so they can play at home. :rolleyes: It would not surprise me one bit. You've got UEFA in their pocket, this isn't a one off. It's in 4 games in a row this season only.
mixed with diving


Highlights.... Toure just jumps over Babel to interfere with his run, if that happens outside the box its obviously a FK. Really quite silly.
How do you keep coming up with this stuff? Genius. :wallbang:
you dont need to be a genius, just watch football and state the truth.
Even if Ryan dived whooooooooop deeeeeee do.

I see us in the Semi final and they aren't simple as. If you want to nit pick Flamini made a handball leading up to the Diaby goal.
the ball hit his shoulder
I see XT has reached its Golden age for priceless Banter :happy: :star: so imaginative and creative it leaves you utterly stunned :dazed::happy: :excited:
:confused: i only stated the truth.
Malcini with a brilliant dive, De Rossi misses a penalty :sad:
Watch it again, 100% penalty.
:howler: Browns leg clearly get the ball.

Only watched some of the first half and Roma where the better team in that half.
